BY HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Saudi troops are in Bahrain after violence there escalated over the weekend. Protesters blocked access to the financial district in the capital city of Manama. Bahraini police reportedly used tear gas, water cannons and rubber bullets to try and disperse the masses. The one thousand Saudi troops are trying to help the country’s Sunni Muslim rulers quell the opposition — led by the majority Shi’ite Muslims, who are demanding equal rights. But, Al Jazeera says, clashes might also exist within the opposition. “Analysts say this latest violence is increasing evidence of a split in the opposition. Between those calling for constitutional reform and others demanding the royal family go.” A euronews report focuses on the Bahraini royal family’s official response to Sunday’s violent clashes — and explains why protesters are hesitant to sit down for peace talks. “Hours after the clashes, Bahrain’s crown prince issued a statement, renewing assurances to the opposition that national dialogue would address their demands. But with tension escalating a spokesperson for the protesters said they wanted more positive gestures of reform before sitting down to talks.” Bahrain is home to the U.S. Navy 5th fleet, and is considered a key ally against Iran’s perceived threats. MSNBC says Iran, an overwhelmingly Shi’ite country, might have a hand in the Bahraini uprising. “Analysts have said Iran is backing the Shi’ite majority to cause unrest in this Sunni-led nation. A lot of people are describing it essentially as Bahrain is a proxy for the conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia...” Finally, the Christian Science Monitor explains why Saudi intervention might make things complicated — not just for the Middle East, but also for the U.S. “Their intervention underlines Saudi Arabia's deep worry over the unrest on its border ... Opposition groups said Monday that the Saudi intervention was a declaration of war. [One Gulf expert] says the entry of Saudi military forces will make the situation stickier for the US, which will find it more difficult to publicly criticize its key ally.” Saudi Arabia, a majority Sunni country, was quick to stifle its very own anti-government protests last week.

BY TRACY PFEIFFER ANCHOR ALEX HOLLEY You're watching multisource U.S. news analysis from Newsy In an appearance at the University of New Hampshire, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan pushed new guidelines to help universities and colleges prevent and respond to campus rape and sexual violence. Biden authored the 1994 Violence Against Women Act -- and in an emotional speech, said that nearly two decades later, the United States still isn’t getting the message. Pres. JOE BIDEN: “No means no. No means no if you’re drunk or you’re sober. No means no if you’re in bed, in a dorm, or on the street. No means no even if you said yes at first and you changed your mind.” (WSCH) The federal civil rights law Title IX requires schools to handle cases of sexual violence quickly and appropriately -- but the vice president argued, many do not have adequate systems to take complaints, protect victims, or notify victims of investigation results. (Video: NECN) A writer for Inside Higher Ed says the new federal guidelines are described as a clarification rather than a set of new rules, but do contain key differences. “The department is stipulating that the burden of proof required for colleges to take action is less than that required for criminal convictions, and stating that there are specific requirements that apply to colleges for incidents that take place off-campus.” An article from The Center for Public Integrity explains, this clarification has been sorely needed--with tragic consequences. “For years, college administrators have criticized the federal government for its lack of specific and consistent instruction on how to resolve student claims of campus rape; the confusion, critics say, has resulted in campus judicial processes that can leave student victims feeling further victimized.” But a writer for the Chronicle of Higher Education reports, some legal experts, like Peter Lake, are concerned university investigations are quote- “inevitably fraught.” “Criminal prosecutors, for lack of evidence, decline to pursue many cases; under Title IX, colleges must. Peter F. Lake, director of the Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy: ‘We've been lured into doing something in a criminal-justice model that the criminal-justice system itself hasn't been able to deal with.’” The 19-page regulatory guidelines were reportedly mailed to colleges, universities, and school districts across the United States.

BY BRANDON TWICHELL ANCHOR: JENNY MECKLES You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy The people of Nigeria turned out to vote in parliamentary elections despite violence at polling stations. Some analysts say this latest election is the freest in Nigeria’s recent history. But a BBC News correspondent reports violence is still a big issue in some parts of the country. “In Maiduguri an explosion at a polling station...killed at least three people - including a female police officer guarding the ballot box - and the presiding electoral officer … In Lagos, some people complained of being unable to vote after not finding their names on the register.” There are more than 73 million registered voters in Nigeria, and a reporter for Al-Jazeera explains the citizens feel they need to vote for a better life - despite the violence. “Nigeria is actually the world’s sixth largest oil producer, exporting two million barrels a day. But 80% of people live below the poverty line. Unemployment is rife. Constant electricity and running water are scarce in most of the nation. Many blame the country’s political leadership for mismanagement.” International observers point to this election as being the freest since the end of military rule in 1999. A West African professor tells Nigeria’s The Nation - the ruling People’s Democratic Party committed election fraud in the past. “President Goodluck Jonathan’s repeated assurances of credible elections...is a welcome departure from the ‘do-or die’ stance of his ruling PDP in the past. This should contribute to a significant attenuation of the dangerously high political temperature.” A writer for Nigeria’s newspaper The Punch says overall, this election demonstrated that Nigerians are ready to take control of their political destiny. “Security agents deployed to the streets and polling centres appeared to be coming to terms with the ethos of democracy. They kept to the background and unlike in the past were not part of the problems of voters this time around.” The AFP reports the ruling PDP will lose seats, but it’s unclear if the party will lose the majority. Presidential and state gubernatorial elections are planned for later this month. 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Get news with analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY BRANDON TWICHELL ANCHOR: You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy. Fighting in Egypt between Muslims and Coptic Christians escalated after a group of Muslims set fire to two Coptic churches. The ensuing violence killed 12 and injured more than 200 others. A CNN reporter explains what potentially sparked the violence. “What sparked this were rumors that a woman, a Coptic woman who had converted to Islam was being held against her will in one of those churches. There’s no clear information whether this woman was actually there or whether she converted to Islam, but it set off a night of violence.” The Wall Street Journal reports this incident was just the latest in a string of violent clashes that share a common theme. “The rise in sectarianism has appeared in parallel with an increasingly vocal Salafi movement—a fundamentalist form of Islam widely practiced in Saudi Arabia—and is posing a significant challenge for the military leadership that assumed power after President Hosni Mubarak stepped down.” The Egyptian government says it will protect places of worship from further attacks. Egypt’s Al-Masry Al-Youm reports an Egyptian activist is holding the government to its word. “If the Egyptian government and army are unable to protect us, then we call on the international community, and the US specifically, to protect us or let us leave Egypt and go anywhere else since we feel we’re not Egyptians.” One Egyptian citizen tells Al Jazeera he welcomes the idea of a tougher government - especially since inaction has allowed violence to continue. “The only solution is to have an iron fist. If the perpetrators of the previous attacks that were taking place recently were apprehended, this wouldn’t have happened. There would have been a deterrent, but there’s no deterrents. There’s no leadership. The armed forces aren’t doing anything.” Most of the Muslim and Coptic witnesses to the violence claim the attackers were thugs and not from the neighborhood. The government announced it has arrested 190 people for violence. Those people will undergo military trials. 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your newsfeed.
